Would you tell a military force that would warn your enemy that they are about to be attacked? I sure wouldn’t. Zero is a Moslem and he believes they should come before us pale skinned infidels.

Trust that Obama gave tacit approval, deniable approval and without risk of retribution -if it benefits the Muslim Brotherhood it has Obama’s standing approval.

True. If Israel had told Onummer, the muzzies would have known about it 7.31 seconds later.

I bet that the CIA and CENTCOM was given a heads up, but they did not pass that on to State or the White House.

Israel would be foolish to give the Muslim African communist, Ubama, a heads up on anything they plan to do.

I hope Obama does not take out his displeasure on Israel, but that is a given, I’m afraid.

Israeli intelligence goes one way. They will accept US military equipment modify it and will not share the mods with the US.

I wouldn't trust the US government if I were them (actually I don't anyway). And not just under Obama either. Too many anti Israel career bureaucrats who would happily leak it to the media.

What are reasons you’d give an ally advance warning? I tried to come up with a list and essentially it comes down to two things; to allow your ally to protect assets in place and as a courtesy. Courtesies are an exchange currency. If you’re courteous to your ally, he will be courteous back, or you aren’t allies. No advanced warning here is, in part, related to how Obama allowed the bottom of his shoe to be photographed for the caption on an Oval Office picture titled, “President Obama speaks to Netanyahu.” Obama has been more than discourteous; he met with Netanyahu’s political enemies while a guest of Israel. He insulted Netanyahu on numerous occasions. The other reason for advance warning is the ally may have spies in place where you’re going to bomb. You’d want to warn him to take them out. The chance of that was zero.

Mr. President, your chickens have come home to roost.
